The original La Contenta is on the Lower East Side, and it’s one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in NYC. The only problem is, it’s kind of small. Fortunately, there’s a West Village location that’s about five times larger. It isn’t quite as charming as the original, but it’s a nice space with big windows, and it’s great for groups. You can also stop by and sit at the bar for happy hour, when certain drinks and dishes are few dollars off. Even when it isn’t Happy Hour, however, this place is still pretty affordable. Try the fish tacos and guacamole, and, while it’s probably the least Mexican thing on the menu, do order the pastry-wrapped chicken wellington. It’s great.

Mexico Lindo review image

As we've said before, finding quality Mexican food in New York City is like finding something on MTV that doesn't make the planet dumber. Mexico Lindo is the needle in the haystack, and we've been satisfying our Mexican cravings there for years.

Corner Bistro review image

There’s something about pounding cheap beers and burgers here that makes you feel like anything is possible. When we finally decided it was go time for “Immaculate” Infatuation, we were sitting in Corner Bistro. A great burger, and a classic establishment.
